Wedding Wednesday: Pre-wedding Moon


BVI 2011

Okay, so I know a pre-wedding moon isn’t actually a thing. But, we made it up so at least in this household it is. I’m beyond excited to leave on our pre-wedding moon Wednesday! As you may or may  not know, the nature of Robert’s job means that he works crazy hours between January through the end of April including most weekends. BUT, I get my guy back in May when he returns to a more human-like schedule.

Last year we celebrated by taking the most incredible trip to Paris and the Loire Valley. We still talk about that trip all.the.time. This year with everything we have going on and lots of travels for other weddings we’re taking a more low key vacay to Cabo!!

If all goes according to plan, by 7:30 a.m. Wednesday morning (someone please remind me why we booked such an early flight?) we’ll be well on our way to Mexico (oh right, it was so we could be sitting by the ocean with a drink in hand by about 2 p.m.)

In general, we’re  the type of people who enjoy going places where we can see and do lots of things–as anyone who has ever received a Robert itinerary knows. But to be perfectly honest, we’re looking forward to five whole days of doing as much nothing as possible. I want to sleep in, eat leisurely meals, sit in the sun slathered with SPF, sip fruity cocktails, read a book or two, and just hang out with my guy. It’s also my first non-working vacation in a loooooong time. Ever since a sailing trip in the British Virgin Islands two years ago forced me to leave work behind (uh, laptop on a boat = bad idea) I learned just how crucial it is to take time away from work (and e-mail…and social media). I had never felt so relaxed in my entire life and I can’t wait to recapture that feeling again.

I hope you all have a fabulous week! I promise I’ll consume plenty of chips, guac, and margaritas for you! Adios!
